In any statutory provision a reference to a petition of doleance shall be construed as an application to the court in accordance with- Chapter 9 of Part 13 (review of detention), rule (appeal by way of case stated), or Chapter 2 of Part 14 (review of lawfulness of decision etc.), as the case may require.' AN ACT to make it unlawful to discriminate against disabled persons in connection with the provision of goods, facilities and services and the disposal or management of premises; and for connected purposes. PART I DISABILITY 1 Meaning of 'disability' and 'disabled person' (1) Subject to the provisions of Schedule 1, a person has a disability for the purposes of this Act if they have a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. (2) In this Act 'disabled person' means a person who has a disability. (3) The Department may by order amend the provisions of Schedule 1 to modify the definition of 'disability' for the purposes of this Act. 2 Past disabilities (1) The provisions of this Part and Part II apply in relation to a person who has had a disability as they apply in relation to a person who has that disability. (2) Those provisions are subject to the modifications made by Schedule 2. (3) Any regulations or order made under this Act may include provision with respect to persons who have had a disability. (4) In any proceedings under Part II, the question whether a person had a disability at a particular time ('the relevant time') shall be determined, for the purposes of this section, as if the provisions of, or made under, this Act in force when the act complained of was done had been in force at the relevant time. (5) The relevant time may be a time before the passing of this Act. 3 Guidance (1) The Department may issue guidance about the matters to be taken into account in determining- whether an impairment has a substantial adverse effect on a person's ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities; or whether such an impairment has a long-term effect. (2) The guidance may, among other things, give examples of- effects which it would be reasonable, in relation to particular activities, to regard for purposes of this Act as substantial adverse effects; effects which it would not be reasonable, in relation to particular activities, to regard for such purposes as substantial adverse effects; substantial adverse effects which it would be reasonable to regard, for such purposes, as long-term;

3 (d) substantial adverse effects which it would not be reasonable to regard, for such purposes, as long-term. (3) When the High Court determines, for any purpose of this Act, whether an impairment has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on a person s ability to carry out normal day-today activities, it shall take into account any guidance which appears to it to be relevant. (4) Before issuing any guidance, the Department shall consult such persons as it considers appropriate. (5) If the Department issues any guidance, it shall lay the guidance before Tynwald as soon as practicable after it has been made, and if Tynwald at the sitting at which the guidance is laid or at the next following sitting fails to approve it, the guidance shall cease to have effect. (6) The guidance shall come into operation on such date as the Department may appoint by order. (7) The Department may- from time to time revise the whole or part of any guidance and re-issue it; by order revoke any guidance. (8) In this section- 'guidance' means guidance issued by the Department under this section and includes guidance which has been revised and re-issued. PART II DISCRIMINATION Goods, facilities and services 4 Discrimination in relation to goods, facilities and services (1) It is unlawful for a provider of services to discriminate against a disabled person- (d) in refusing to provide, or deliberately not providing, to the disabled person any service which that person provides, or is prepared to provide, to members of the public; in failing to comply with any duty imposed on that person by section 6 in circumstances in which the effect of that failure is to make it impossible or unreasonably difficult for the disabled person to make use of any such service; in the standard of service which is provided to the disabled person or the manner in which it is provided to the disabled person; or in the terms on which a service is provided to the disabled person. (2) For the purposes of this section and sections 5 and 6- the provision of services includes the provision of any goods or facilities; a person is 'a provider of services' if that person is concerned with the provision of services to the public or to a section of the public; and it is irrelevant whether a service is provided on payment or without payment. (3) The following are examples of services to which this section and sections 5 and 6 apply- access to and use of any place which members of the public are permitted to enter; access to and use of means of communication; access to and use of information services; (d) access to and use of public passenger vehicles, public service vehicles and rail vehicles; (e) accommodation in a hotel, boarding house or other similar establishment; (f) facilities by way of banking or insurance or for grants, loans, credit or finance; (g) facilities for entertainment, recreation or refreshment; (h) training facilities provided by employment agencies or other businesses ; (i) the services of any profession or trade, or any public authority; (j) facilities for the provision of education or other associated services.

4 (4) The Department may by regulations prescribe services which are, or services which are not, to be regarded for the purposes of subsection (3)(j) as being- education; or an associated service. (5) In the case of an act which constitutes discrimination by virtue of section 15 (victimisation), this section also applies to discrimination against a person who is not disabled. (6) Except in such circumstances as may be prescribed, this section and sections 5 and 6 do not apply to such services as may be prescribed. 5 Meaning of 'discrimination' (1) For the purposes of section 4, a provider of services discriminates against a disabled person if- for a reason which relates to the disabled person's disability, that person treats the disabled person less favourably than he or she treats or would treat others to whom that reason does not or would not apply; and he or she cannot show that the treatment in question is justified. (2) For the purposes of section 4, a provider of services also discriminates against a disabled person if- that person fails to comply with a section 6 duty which is imposed in relation to the disabled person; and that person cannot show that his or her failure to comply with that duty is justified. (3) For the purposes of this section, treatment is justified only if- in the opinion of the provider of services, one or more of the conditions mentioned in subsection (4) are satisfied; and it is reasonable, in all the circumstances of the case, for that person to hold that opinion. (4) The conditions are that- (d) (e) in any case, the treatment is necessary in order not to endanger the health or safety of any person (which may include that of the disabled person); in any case, the disabled person is incapable of entering into an enforceable agreement, or of giving an informed consent, and for that reason the treatment is reasonable in that case; in a case falling within section 4(1), the treatment is necessary because the provider of services would otherwise be unable to provide the service to members of the public; in a case falling within section 4(1) or (d), the treatment is necessary in order for the provider of services to be able to provide the service to the disabled person or to other members of the public; in a case falling within section 4(1)(d), the difference in the terms on which the service is provided to the disabled person and those on which it is provided to other members of the public reflects the greater cost to the provider of services in providing the service to the disabled person. (5) Any increase in the cost of providing a service to a disabled person which results from compliance by a provider of services with a section 6 duty shall be disregarded for the purposes of subsection (4)(e). (6) Regulations may make provision, for the purposes of this section, as to circumstances in which- it is reasonable for a provider of services to hold the opinion mentioned in subsection (3); it is not reasonable for a provider of services to hold that opinion. (7) Regulations may make provision for subsection (4) not to apply in prescribed circumstances where- a person is acting for a disabled person under a power of attorney; or

5 functions conferred by or under Part 7 of the Mental Health Act 1998 are exercisable in relation to a disabled person s property or affairs. (8) Regulations may make provision, for the purposes of this section, as to circumstances (other than those mentioned in subsection (4)) in which treatment is to be taken to be justified. (9) In subsections (3), (4) and (8) 'treatment' includes failure to comply with a section 6 duty. 6 Duty of providers of services to make adjustments (1) Where a provider of services has a practice, policy or procedure which makes it impossible or unreasonably difficult for disabled persons to make use of a service which that person provides, or is prepared to provide, to other members of the public, it is that person s duty to take such steps as it is reasonable, in all the circumstances of the case, to have to take in order to change that practice, policy or procedure so that it no longer has that effect. (2) Where a physical feature (for example, one arising from the design or construction of a building or the approach or access to premises) makes it impossible or unreasonably difficult for disabled persons to make use of such a service, it is the duty of the provider of that service to take such steps as it is reasonable, in all the circumstances of the case, for that person to have to take in order to- remove the feature; alter it so that it no longer has that effect; (d) provide a reasonable means of avoiding the feature; or provide a reasonable alternative method of making the service in question available to disabled persons. (3) Regulations may prescribe- matters which are to be taken into account in determining whether any provision of a kind mentioned in subsection (2) or (d) is reasonable; and categories of providers of services to whom subsection (2) does not apply. (4) Where an auxiliary aid or service (for example, the provision of information on audio tape or of a sign language interpreter) would- enable disabled persons to make use of a service which a provider of services provides, or is prepared to provide, to members of the public, or facilitate the use by disabled persons of such a service, it is the duty of the provider of that service to take such steps as it is reasonable, in all the circumstances of the case, for that person to have to take in order to provide that auxiliary aid or service. (5) Regulations may make provision, for the purposes of this section- (d) (e) (f) (g) (h) as to circumstances in which it is reasonable for a provider of services to have to take steps of a prescribed description; as to circumstances in which it is not reasonable for a provider of services to have to take steps of a prescribed description; as to what is to be included within the meaning of 'practice, policy or procedure'; as to what is not to be included within the meaning of that expression; as to things which are to be treated as physical features; as to things which are not to be treated as such features; as to things which are to be treated as auxiliary aids or services; as to things which are not to be treated as auxiliary aids or services. (6) Nothing in this section requires a provider of services to take any steps which would fundamentally alter the nature of the service in question or the nature of that person s trade, profession or business. (7) Nothing in this section requires a provider of services to take any steps which would cause that person to incur expenditure exceeding the prescribed maximum.

6 (8) Regulations under subsection (7) may provide for the prescribed maximum to be calculated by reference to- aggregate amounts of expenditure incurred in relation to different cases; prescribed periods; services of a prescribed description; (d) premises of a prescribed description; or (e) such other criteria as may be prescribed. (9) Regulations may provide, for the purposes of subsection (7), for expenditure incurred by one provider of services to be treated as incurred by another. (10) This section imposes duties only for the purpose of determining whether a provider of services has discriminated against a disabled person; and accordingly a breach of any such duty is not actionable as such. Premises 7 Discrimination in relation to premises (1) It is unlawful for a person with power to dispose of any premises to discriminate against a disabled person- in the terms on which that person offers to dispose of those premises to the disabled person; by refusing to dispose of those premises to the disabled person; or in that person s treatment of the disabled person in relation to any list of persons in need of premises of that description. (2) Subsection (1) does not apply to a person who owns an estate or interest in the premises and wholly occupies them unless, for the purpose of disposing of the premises, that person- uses the services of a registered estate agent, or publishes an advertisement or causes an advertisement to be published. (3) It is unlawful for a person managing any premises to discriminate against a disabled person occupying those premises- in the way that person permits the disabled person to make use of any benefits or facilities; by refusing or deliberately omitting to permit the disabled person to make use of any benefits or facilities; or by evicting the disabled person, or subjecting him or her to any other detriment. (4) It is unlawful for any person whose licence or consent is required for the disposal of any premises comprised in a tenancy to discriminate against a disabled person by withholding that licence or consent for the disposal of the premises to the disabled person. (5) Subsection (4) applies to tenancies created before as well as after the passing of this Act. (6) In this section- 'advertisement' includes every form of advertisement or notice, whether to the public or not; 'dispose', in relation to premises, includes granting a right to occupy the premises, and, in relation to premises comprised in a tenancy, includes- assigning the tenancy, and sub-letting or parting with possession of the premises or any part of the premises; and 'disposal' shall be construed accordingly; 'registered estate agent' has the meaning given to it by the Estate Agents Act 1975; and 'tenancy' means a tenancy created- by a lease or sub-lease, by an agreement for a lease or sub-lease, by a tenancy agreement, or

7 (d) in pursuance of any enactment. (7) In the case of an act which constitutes discrimination by virtue of section 15 (victimisation), this section also applies to discrimination against a person who is not disabled. 8 Exemption for small dwellings (1) Where the conditions mentioned in subsection (2) are satisfied, subsection (1), (3) or (as the case may be) (4) of section 7 does not apply. (2) The conditions are that- the relevant occupier resides, and intends to continue to reside, on the premises; the relevant occupier shares accommodation on the premises with persons who reside on the premises and are not members of his or her household; (d) the shared accommodation is not storage accommodation or a means of access; and the premises are small premises.

(5) Premises fall within this subsection if there is not normally residential accommodation on the premises for more than 6 persons in addition to the relevant occupier and any members of the relevant occupier s household. (6) For the purposes of this section 'the relevant occupier' means- in a case falling within section 7(1), the person with power to dispose of the premises, or a near relative of that person; in a case falling within section 7(4), the person whose licence or consent is required for the disposal of the premises, or a near relative of that person.

(2) For the purposes of this section, treatment is justified only ifin A s opinion, one or more of the conditions mentioned in subsection (3) are satisfied; and it is reasonable, in all the circumstances of the case, for A to hold that opinion.

Enforcement, etc. 10 Enforcement, remedies and procedure (1) A claim by any person that another person- has discriminated against him or her in a way which is unlawful under this Part; or is by virtue of section 16 (aiding unlawful acts) or 17 (liability of employers and principals) to be treated as having discriminated against him or her in such a way, may be made the subject of civil proceedings in the same way as any other claim in tort. (2) For the avoidance of doubt it is hereby declared that damages in respect of discrimination in a way which is unlawful under this Part may include compensation for injury to feelings whether or not they include compensation under any other head. (3) The remedies available in such proceedings are those which are available in the High Court. (4) Schedule 3 makes further provision about the enforcement of this Part and about procedure. 11 Non-discrimination orders (1) A non-discrimination order is an order of the High Court requiring the person concerned- not to commit any act mentioned in subsection (2); and where compliance with paragraph involves changes in any of that person s practices or other arrangements- (i) to inform the Attorney General that he or she has effected those changes and what those changes are; and (ii) to take such steps as are required by the order for the purpose of affording that information to other persons concerned; and to furnish the Attorney General with such other information as may reasonably be required by the Attorney General in order to verify that the order has been complied with. (2) This section applies to any act which is unlawful by virtue of this Part or section 15 (victimisation). (3) If the Attorney General, after such inquiry as he or she thinks appropriate in the circumstances of the case, has reasonable grounds to believe that a person is committing, or has committed, any act to which this section applies, the Attorney General may serve on that person a notice that he or she is minded to apply to the High Court for a non-discrimination order.

(6) If, after the expiry of a period of 6 weeks from the date on which the non-discrimination order was made, the Attorney General has reasonable grounds to believe that any of the requirements of that order have not been complied with, the Attorney General may, at any time, report the circumstances to the High Court. (7) The references in this section to a person who is committing, or has committed, any act to which this section applies include references to a person who is by virtue of section 16 (aiding unlawful acts) or 17 (liability of employers and principals) to be treated as having committed an act to which this section applies. (8) This section applies to the acts mentioned in subsection (2) whether or not other proceedings have been brought in respect of the act. (9) This section does not prejudice any other power of the Attorney General to enforce the law of the Island. 12 Validity and revision of certain agreements (1) Any term in a contract for the provision of goods, facilities or services or in any other agreement is void so far as it purports to- require a person to do anything which would contravene any provision of, or made under, this Part, exclude or limit the operation of any provision of this Part, or prevent any person from making a claim under this Part. (2) Paragraphs and of subsection (1) do not apply to an agreement settling a claim to which section 10 (enforcement and remedies) applies. (3) On the application of any person interested in an agreement to which subsection (1) applies, the High Court may make such order as it thinks just for modifying the agreement to take account of the effect of subsection (1).

(6) An order under subsection (3) may include provision as respects any period before the making of the order. 13 Alterations to premises occupied under leases (1) This section applies where- a provider of services ('the occupier') occupies premises under a lease; but for this section, the occupier would not be entitled to make a particular alteration to the premises; and the alteration is one which the occupier proposes to make in order to comply with a section 6 duty. (2) Except to the extent to which it expressly so provides, the lease shall have effect by virtue of this subsection as if it provided- for the occupier to be entitled to make the alteration with the written consent of the lessor; for the occupier to have to make a written application to the lessor for consent if the occupier wishes to make the alteration;

(3) In this section- 'lease' includes a tenancy, sub-lease or sub-tenancy and an agreement for a lease, tenancy, sub-lease or sub-tenancy; and 'sub-lease' and 'sub-tenancy' have such meaning as may be prescribed. (4) If the terms and conditions of a lease- impose conditions which are to apply if the occupier alters the premises, or entitle the lessor to impose conditions when consenting to the occupier's altering the premises, the occupier is to be treated for the purposes of subsection (1) as not being entitled to make the alteration. (5) Schedule 4 supplements the provisions of this section. 14 Advice and assistance (1) The Department shall make arrangements for the provision of advice and assistance to persons with a view to promoting the settlement of disputes arising under this Part otherwise than by recourse to the High Court.

(3) Where B is a disabled person, or a person who has had a disability, the disability in question shall be disregarded in comparing B s circumstances with those of any other person for the purposes of subsection (1). (4) References in subsection (2) to B include references to- a person who is B s parent; and a sibling of B.

11 (5) Subsection (1) does not apply to treatment of a person because of an allegation made by that person if the allegation was false and not made in good faith. 16 Aiding unlawful acts (1) A person who knowingly aids another person to do an unlawful act is to be treated for the purposes of this Act as doing the same kind of unlawful act. (2) For the purposes of subsection (1), an employee or agent for whose act the employer or principal is liable under section 17 (or would be so liable but for section 17(5)) shall be taken to have aided the employer or principal to do the act. (3) For the purposes of this section, a person does not knowingly aid another to do an unlawful act if- that person acts in reliance on a statement made to him or her by that other person that, because of any provision of this Act, the act would not be unlawful; and it is reasonable for that person to rely on the statement. (4) A person who knowingly or recklessly makes such a statement which is false or misleading in a material respect is guilty of an offence. (5) Any person guilty of an offence under subsection (4) shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding 5,000.

(4) Subsections (1) and (2) do not apply in relation to an offence under section 16(4).

(4) For the purposes of sub-paragraph (1)- where an unlawful act of discrimination is attributable to a term in a contract, that act is to be treated as extending throughout the duration of the contract; any act extending over a period shall be treated as done at the end of that period; and a deliberate omission shall be treated as done when the person in question decided upon it. (5) In the absence of evidence establishing the contrary, a person shall be taken for the purposes of this paragraph to decide upon an omission- when that person does an act inconsistent with doing the omitted act; or if that person has done no such inconsistent act, when the period expires within which he or she might reasonably have been expected to do the omitted act if it was to be done.

If any question arises as to whether the occupier has failed to comply with the section 6 duty, by failing to make a particular alteration to premises, any constraint attributable to the fact that the occupier occupies the premises under a lease is to be ignored unless the occupier has applied to the lessor in writing for consent to the making of the alteration.

17 Reference to court 2. (1) If the occupier has applied in writing to the lessor for consent to the alteration and- that consent has been refused, or the lessor has given consent subject to one or more conditions, the occupier or a disabled person who has an interest in the proposed alteration to the premises being made, may refer the matter to the High Court. (2) On such a reference the court shall determine whether the lessor s refusal was unreasonable or (as the case may be) whether the condition is, or any of the conditions are, unreasonable. (3) If the court determines- that the lessor s refusal was unreasonable, or that the condition is, or any of the conditions are, unreasonable, it may make such declaration as it considers appropriate or an order authorising the occupier to make the alteration specified in the order. (4) An order under sub-paragraph (3) may require the occupier to comply with conditions specified in the order.

(2) The request shall be granted if it is made before the hearing of the claim begins. (3) The court may refuse the request if it is made after the hearing of the claim begins. (4) The request may not be granted if it is made after the court has determined the claim. (5) Where a lessor has been so joined or assisted as a party to the proceedings, the court may determine- whether the lessor has- (i) refused consent to the alteration, or (ii) consented subject to one or more conditions, and if so, whether the refusal or any of the conditions was unreasonable. (6) If, under sub-paragraph (5), the court determines that the refusal or any of the conditions was unreasonable it may take one or more of the following steps- make such declaration as it considers appropriate; make an order authorising the occupier to make the alteration specified in the order; order the lessor to pay compensation to the complainant. (7) An order under sub-paragraph (6) may require the occupier to comply with conditions specified in the order. (8) If the court orders the lessor to pay compensation it may not order the occupier to do so. Regulations 4. Regulations may make provision as to circumstances in which- a lessor is to be taken, for the purposes of section 13 and this Schedule to have- (i) withheld consent; (ii) (iii) withheld consent unreasonably; acted reasonably in withholding consent; a condition subject to which a lessor has given consent is to be taken to be reasonable; a condition subject to which a lessor has given consent is to be taken to be unreasonable.
